I would suggest a Linksys reset:

This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Try the other ports at this time.
If you still have problems:
Once the router has been reset, you can log in to it.. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
There you can look around the setup pages and see if any errors are reported. Also make sure that it is set for DHCP.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I am through which port do i connect the router linksys E900 to my laptop?


It's a wireless router, so you may not need to use a port at all.

You can connect to any of the ports numbered 1 through 4. The yellow Internet port should connect to your outside network. (Cable modem or router or Ethernet port from your Internet service provider.)

HOW TO USE INTERNET IN MORE THAN ONE PC FROM LINKSYS WIRELESS G B


You have two ways on how you can get other computer online through this router. First, you can wired them (using an Ethernet cable) to one of the Ethernet ports on the back of the router. They are the ones labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Second is through wireless, but those computers that will connect through wireless must also have a wireless adapter to be able to pick up the signal that this router is broadcasting.

Linksys Wireless WRT54G Router Won't Connect


Here's something you can do.
First, power off the modem and the linksys.  Then swap the yellow cable with the blue cable (this time, connect yellow cable to port 2 of Linksys)
Now, turn on the Modem first... wait about 1 minute, then turn on the Linksys.
1. Log into the router and go to "Status" tab.  
2. You should see something called Internet and under it Configuration type.  If all you see is 0.0.0.0 without a gateway address, it didn't work 
3. You can also see 2 buttons at the bottom of the screen.  Click on "DHCP Release", then "DHCP renew"
4. look at the configuration type and see if it is no longer 0.0.0.0 Then try connecting to the internet to a website you have not visited (do not try the same websites as before when you initially tested).

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

The port of Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router


What do you want to know about the ports? The one separated from the other ports is the Internet port. that is where you're going to connect the cable from your modem. The other four are the ethernet port where you will connect the computers.

Ethernet cable lites don't lite up when a cable is inserted in any of the four ethernet ports. I have Linksy-G router. I can't seem to communicate with my other computer on my network setup. Donald...


If the light wont lit on the port where that cable is connected , that can mean the cable is bad or the router ports are bad so if you have an extra cable better try it and if that work so the problem is the ethernet cable but if still have the same result the problem is the ports on the router and better call Linksys tech support for that this is the number 800-3267114.

Hope that helps.....

Dual Routers?


Disable DHCP in the router. Connect the modem to a LAN jack on the router. You'll have 3 LAN ports. If you need more ports, buy a hub. (You can change the default IP address on the Linksys, but you can't forward through 2 NATs.)

Ps3


Are you going to connect your PS3 wired to your router or wireless?
1. check first if ps3 is working behind rca modem.
2. then connect a pc directly to your linksys router
3. open configuration page of linksys by typing your gateway on your browser. (usually it is by default 192.168.1.1)
4. go to applications and gaming tab
5. you'll find there port forwarding..key in your number there
> i guess your numbers are like 88 and 3764 (something like that)
6. if your trying to connect your playstation wirelessly, you need to know your wireless security (if your router is secured).
> go to wireless tab and look for wireless security
> get your key
7. go back to playstation and try to view your wireless network
> connect and type in your key

Connecting my router


Ok, so the ethernet port on your DSL or Cable modem has to be connected to the WAN port on the router first and foremost. Then I would suggest that you connect the ethernet port on the laptop to port 1 on the router, and attempt to log in that way. Bring up your browser (Internet Exploder, Netscape, etc.) and type 192.168.1.1 (if that doesn't work try 192.168.0.1, Linksys switches it up) in the adress bar... and ensure that you can get in that way. Then try surfing the web to see if it connects correctly... although you may need to speak to your Internet Service Provider to ensure that they are allowing your MAC Address to connect to their Network... the one under the WAN settings, NOT the LAN settings. It should look like this... MAC Address: 00:01:81:52:3f:99
